  1. Nice person of the day award

    I want to nominate the Turkish grocer/butcher across the street who very patiently put together a healthy mix of fruits for a mostly deaf and almost blind old geezer who couldn't see what was on display, named the price, took the money out of his wallet and put back the change (1 cent), made sure that the old guy had a good grip on the plastic bag and helped him across the crosswalk.
  2. Today I did something stupid

    When I left home this morning I picked up the newspaper on the bench next to the door and realized 10 paces further on that it was yesterday's that was lying there waiting to be thrown into the old paper bin (one of four garbage cans outside our door). Today's paper was on the kitchen counter waiting to be put into my bag.
  3. Pet sitter recommendations

    Hi all,   Scogs and I are back from Cancun, and yes it was great! To all of you who offered to take care of my kitties, thank you all again, maybe we can work something out next time. I ended up taking the three (3, 8 and 15 yrs) to the Katzenstüberl belonging to a vet named Hannelore Koch. She is heavy on natural medicine etc. and really loves animals. When we brought the cats she gave them a thorough check-up, talked to them and jotted down any special information I had. We then took the cats to this well secured shed (possibly a former barn on a small scale) in back of the office building which has a ledge all around about 2/3 of the way up to the sloping roof, an upper floor taking up half the available space and loads of cat-trees, perching places, hideaways, ladders and cat-mint.   I should say there is room for about 15 cats there without their feeling crowded, the place is neither too hot or too cold, the radio runs all day long so the cats have a human voice around them. We picked them up today, well-fed, perky and healthy, and Hannelore told us exactly how each of them behaved, proving that she does keep tabs on them and remembers their behavior. They get fed and patted three times a day and do their cat-thing the rest of the time. I even have the impression that two of my cats are missing their new playmates   The costs are 8.50 Euro per day per cat but can be less if you have more than one.   Telephone contact is 089/74664131, address Plinganserstrasse 6 at the top of the Sendlinger Berg.   IMPORTANT: English is not her strong side!   Update: Hannelore Koch's Sendlinger Katzenstüberl has moved!   It is now in Deining, south of Munich/Grünwald, at Hochstrasse 8 (link to map), Tel. 08170-997 281. She may come around and pick up your cats for a separate fee if you can't bring them yourselves.
